Has anyone else noticed the distinctiveness of the first Eyes of the World from 2/9/73?

Weir repeats this lovely little descending riff throughout. It should get annoying, but somehow never does. By the next time they play it, on 2/15, he's already dropped it, and I've never heard that figure employed in any subsequent Eyes.

Am I the only one who's ever wondered about this?
